Random Recap (Pictures)

Wednesday night:

Rob came over, and I made him spaghetti. The only sauce I had was onion, garlic and something or other else. I didn’t think I’d like it, but after avoiding the onions, it turned out to be VERY tasty. Rob liked it too. I made “garlic bread” out of wheat hamburger buns with butter and Taylor Street cheese sprinkle on top. Oh YUMMMM. We also had a good conversation outside by his car.

Rob is always enjoyable company. :)

Uploaded pix to Deviant Art site. I might be addicted to photo posting sites–but nothing will compare to my Flickr. :)

What I did last night:

Finally fixed the time settings on my camera, so it wouldn’t say AM when it should say PM.

Decided I needed to figure out how to use the fully manual functions on my camera.

Went down to The Basement (inside Fat Eddie’s) to see Tony Lucca (of former MMC fame) open for Marty Casey (?) and the Love Hammers. Tony was amazing, but he wasn’t really meeting with any fans after the show, which sucked. I wanted a picture with him, so I could compare it to when I met him in 1993.

Was told by the guys that I wasn’t allowed to take pictures with my nice camera at the request of the band. AFTER I’d taken several of Tony already (not knowing this request). They’re afraid I’ll sell them.

I laughed at that. Seriously, who’d want to buy these?

MMC’s Got it Going On, FUNKY STYLE!

I haven’t done an MMC post in… forever. Here’s some history. I used to be a huge, huge, huge fan of the All-New Mickey Mouse Club. Yes, this is the show that spawned the likes of Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, and Keri Russell. Before there were those guys, there was a Mylin Brooks, a Terra McNair, a Rhona Bennett, a Tony Lucca. Definitely a Ricky Luna. Those kids made my life. I wrote fan fiction about them before it was cool. They got me out of bed when I felt like covering up and hiding from the world. They kept me in shape, for I learned every dance step to every cool song they performed. They helped me dress, speak, grow. Every single day at 5:30pm, I would sit in front of my TV, VCR remote in hand, ready to tape anything with Ricky in it, and all musical numbers.

The musical numbers were my favorite parts, and that’s why I was never surprised when these kids grew up into talented adults. Following their dreams. Entertaining.

Many of them have found each other on MySpace, and I’ve had a blast friending them and being able to talk with these people who touched my life so much back in the early ’90s. They’re all working so hard, still chasing dreams–even the ones who have found them–they’re still going. They’re pulling for each other, supporting each other. True friends ’til the end. They inspired me then, and they’re still inspiring me now.

Visit their MySpace sites and show some love:

Mylin · Tony · Rhona · Dale · Terra
Christina · T.J. · Tate · Ricky · Jennifer · Chase &middot J.C.

If I missed any, feel free to post the URLs in the comments.

Today, Mylin released her first American album, called American Girl. I listened to a few samples on her MySpace page and it’s GOOD. I’m headed to CD BABY to buy it now. ♥ Much love for the Mouseketeers!!!
